, former pollster for jimmy carter, and doug schoen, a former pollster for bill clinton. gentleman, here is speaker boehner, at the white house, talking to the president today, two days after he said, well, it has been a wasted week. >> it has been a wasted week. the republicans are divided. as the poll numbers suggest very clearly, the republican brand is weak weakening. i believe they are trying to put together something to avoid going over the cliff. speaker boehner has asserted his control over a fractured caucus and bottom line, it remains to be seen whether they can get a deal but i read in the statement, which was identical from the white house and from speaker boehner, they are looking for something big, not small. >>gregg: big would be, the grand bargain that 16 months ago they were on the precipice of and suddenly it didn't happen, so... >> part of the reason it didn't happen speaker boehner was told by the majority leader, cantor, allied with the tea party faction in the house of representatives, you do this deal with obama, you are out as speaker. so, this time we have had th
of state hillary clinton. the u.s. and other nations fear that the syrian regime could use chemical weapons against its own people. secretary clinton making it very clear that syrian president bashar al-assad must go. >> let me also be absolutely clear. the united states stands with the syrian people in insisting that any transition process result in a unified, democratic syria. in which all citizens are represented. sunni, alawite, christians, kurds, men, women, every syrian must be included in this process for a new and better future. martha: still far from where we are right now in the country of syria where 45,000 people have been killed under the assad regime. president, secretary clinton also promising to hold all parties accountable for what happens in syria. in other words, if assad does go, if you are part of that regime, part of the killing, part of what we've seen happening you also will be held accountable. bill: we were told the ignition process had begun for the chemical weapons. if that is the case. we were also told they have a shelf life for about 60 days. if you do not use
be -- if you raise the rates up to the clinton levels for the top two percent you make 82 billion a year. that is not enough to close the gap . washington post on the editorial page. we looked at what the president suggested and republicans suggested it is nice that they are starting to talk. but the numbers have to be a lot bigger . you need real tax reform. >> gretchen: he won the election with that argument. >> steve: republicans won the congress with their argument that they didn't want to raise the rates. >> brian: if you want to know what the president things. you can go flip channels and find out about the briefing and the president's stance on taxes and goal with the economy and maybe what he will say in the inauguration. look who was invited to the white house >> chris: who was left to run msnbc. >> happy and ed and arihanna huffington. i don't know if the white house released the fact. but someone from the blog sites saw it. and so wait a minute what is going on. yeah, we were invited for not a strategy but just to explain. >> gretchen: i don't know why anybody. >> brian: five
offered a serious proceed proceeds albased on testimony of president clinton's former chief of staff. since then there's been no counter offer from the white house. instead reports indicate that the president has adopted a deliberate strategy to slow walk our economy right to the edge of the fiscal cliff. instead of reforming the tax code and cutting spending the president wants to raise tax rates. even if the president got the tax rate hike that he wanted, understand that we would continue to see trillion-dollar deficits for as far as the eye can see. listen, washington has got a spending problem not a revenue problem. if the president doesn't agree with our proposal i believe that he's got an obligation to families and small businesses to offer a plan of his own, a plan that can pass both chambers of the congress. we are ready and eager to talk to the president about such a plan. >> you did speak with the president earlier this week, can you characterize that call? did he have any kind of counter offer? also, we understand that he is making clear that it's got to be increase in rat
on the wealthy. if you bump the rates on the wealthy back to the clinton area it's the magic band-aid it fixes all of our problems. >> bill: marco rubio said it's a myth but i think that's been pointed out five gazillion times. i think folks are so numb to this they don't even pay attention to it. >> bill: i don't mind paying higher taxes i really don't but i don't want to waste it right now i'm not getting any bang for my buck at all, none. zero. >> we have such a big spending problem. if you look at -- take a look at 2007, you know, george w. bush is president. we have got the wars going on. we have got the bush tax cuts in 2007 our deficit was $160 billion. that number almost sounds -- $160 billion. it's a spending problem. >> bill: i want you to do me a favor and call diane sawyer after we get off the air i want you to tell her as kristen pointed out in 2007 the highest revenue in the history of the republic came into washington because the taxes were fairly moderate and people were investing and capital gains was kicking in at the 15 and 30% rate and all that money was coming in washingto
is street to street, block to block, house to house, urban combat at its worst. hillary clinton says the events in syria are accelerating, and both sides are talking about some way to try to find some type of resolution to this war in syria that has lasted nearly two years long. russia a big supporter of the bashar al-assad, the russian foreign minister met with secretary clinton in bu dublin. she felt the meeting upbeat thinking there may be a come proeu myself in th compromise in the future. right now there is nothing concrete and syrians continue to die. >> reporter: with every step forward the opposition makes in syria it raises concerns that a cornered president bashar al-assad could be more likely to use those chemical weapons that are apparently loaded and ready to drop. lieutenant general tom mcnerney is a fox news military analyst and served as vice chief of staff of the united states air force. thanks so much for being here. intelligence reports suggest that bashar al-assad is making moves to putting together and readying these chemical weapons. you'll remember that preside
of state hillary clinton held a news conference. keep in mind, russia here, really, resisted the efforts to speed the departure of the syrian leader al assad. so jill, do we know, was syria's chemical weapons, was that discussed here in this conversation between the secretary of state and the foreign minister of russia? >> reporter: well, yes. initially. there are actually two meetings between secretary clinton and the foreign minister. and you know, russia actually does -- this is one area where they do agree. russia is very much opposed to any type of use of chemical weapons and in fact secretary clinton thanked him for speaking about that which she did in brussels just yesterday, talking about that. although, brooke, you know, you have to say that the russians next breath say that they have raised that issue, in fact, with bashar al assad. the president of syria. and he assures them that there's no use intended and it is not a problem and, so, you kind of have two messages coming from the russians but you would have to say they're very much opposed to that and a lot of concern. >> so
. federal law signed into law by president clinton in 1996. it says if a person is legally married in a state, the federal government can't recognize those marriages. that's where you talked about federal benefits heterosexual couples get and same sex couples do not. the prop 8 thing is bigger. while potentially it's confined to the state of california only, the question it out there having given the right to gay marriage could the state then take it away through proposition 8 passed by a majority of the vote nurse 2008. having taken that case, the court could get to the bedrock issue. can any state refuse to let same sex couples get married under the federal constitution. it could potentially be narrow or very far. >> pete, as i understand it, let me ask you. this one of these things, maybe the driving one, is defense of marriage act was about paying the estate act. where one of the two people said she didn't have to pay the estate tax because a married couple wouldn't have to. >> reporter: this is a case from new york. a woman named edie windsor who married her partner in canada.
states ambassador susan rice is going to replace out going senator clinton. and the defense secretary position is being vacated by leon panetta. >> he may reach across party lines and give chuck hagel the top job for the pentagon. >> he has a lot of good people to choose from. he wants to put together a team. a team overall that going into the second term does not look like a group of second strangers. >> treasure secretary tim geithner said he will stay on until the inauguration. jack la is being mentioned as a replacement. >>> they ignored warnings that a large hurricane could hit the big apple. a 2,006 report said it was a question of time before hurricane came and flooded the system and caused wide outages in new york city. those warnings went unheeded due to concerns about budget cuts and the likelihood of such a storm. hurricane sandy is the second costliest disaster in u.s. history. >>> they had the first hack-a-thon. they worked on ideas yesterday afternoon. the goal was to create fun and practical apps using public information available through county records. >> we have seen
. both michelle obama and bill clinton were nominated in the category best spoken word album. good for them. yeah. yeah. true story. michelle was nominated for the audio version of her book american grown, and bill clinton was nominated for the audio version "50 shades of gray." >> "early start" continues right now. >>> breaking news near tokyo. a powerful earthquake hit off the coast. a tsunami warning issued. and then lifted. we go live to japan straight ahead. >>> and the "new york post" photographer who took the picture of the man on the subway tracks before he was hit sits down to tell us his side of the story. we'll hear from him this hour. >>> and imagine a professional football game without kickoffs. it's just one of the suggestions to improve the safety of the game for players. details this hour on cnn. >> i'm curious as to how everybody feels about that. >> welcome to "early start." i'm christine roman by devastating tsunami that killed 15,000 people and caused widespread damage. the tsunami this time hit a place called -- or near a town almost totally devastated in the 2
: hillary clinton. >> we followed the president and president bush into war and now i think this president is being understandably cautious. listen, because saddam hussein had used sarin gas on his own people in 1988, it was not a giant leap to assume that he was going to use them on us or on his neighbors. >> brian: in the aftermath of the war, it was found there after the persian gulf war. >> well, i don't remember a lot of sarin gas being found. some was indeed. i guess. i have a dim recollection of that. it certainly wasn't a big item. but listen, we know now, intelligence tells us now that bashar assad in syria has sarin gas and he is partially loaded them on his fighter bombers that now pretty well established. it's not just fox news reporting it and nbc news reporting it. it's intelligence sources in washington and elsewhere abroad. now it is pretty clear that they have taken at least the preliminary steps. however, and here is where i differ from the vice president, i believe that the secretary of state, hillary clinton, and the president of the united states has made very, very cl
supporting same sex marriage, president clinton who signed defense of marriage act into law, he supports gay marriage, but the american public attitudes have changed. back in 2005, 35% thought same sex marriage should be recognized. now it is up to 53%. here is the question. do the justices, the nine justices, are they influenced by public opinion? >> you bet. they sure are. this is an issue that wouldn't even have been on the agenda had the public not changed so dramatically. let me just tell you a story from supreme court history. 1986, the first real significant gay rights case that the court ever had, the swing vote at the time was lewis powell. and he was in his chambers, said to his law clerk, you know, i don't think i ever met a homosexual. no justice would say that today. as it turned out, that law clerk himself was a gay man, although he didn't disclose it to the justice at the time. the world has changed so dramatically, the polls have changed. justice ruth ginsberg often talks about the reason she won as a lawyer all the women's rights cases in the 1970s is that the world had chan
by president clinton in 1996, and it's a law that says the federal government, all as pecks of the federal government, including the internal revenue service will not recognize same-sex marriages even many states where same-sex marriage is legal and two appeals courts have held that that is unconstitutional, that it is unlawful discrimination. the obama administration agrees that this law is unconstitutional. it's now being defended by a lawyer hired by the house of representatives, and the case about is the defense of marriage act constitutional, that is one. there are several different cases raising that issue that the justices are probably going to decide whether to hear today. >> california's prop 8, what would that entail? >> propositional is a very different case because that's really a more fundamental case that potentially could apply in every state of the union. basically that question is does the constitution require that everyone, gay or straight, has the right to get married, and what makes the proposition 8 case potentially so earth-shaking in its politics is that it might not
, signed into law by president clinton, that law says that the federal government will not recognize same sex marriages, even in the states where it's legal. so if you are a married couple, same sex couple in massachusetts, you can't file a joint tax return, can't inherit tax free the way heterosexual married couples can. the obama administration says, agrees that law is unconstitutional. that law is now being defended by a lawyer hired by the republicans in the house of representatives. so that -- that is one case. the other case is the proposition 8 case in california. if you recall, california -- there was a referendum -- the california supreme court ruled that there had to be same sex marriage under the california constitution. gay people had the right to get married there for a brief period of time. then there was an initiative put on the ballot, proposition 8, california voted in a close election to overturn same sex marriage. same sex marriage was banned after it was briefly legal. the federal district court had a trial there, and said that law, proposition 8, banning same sex marr
